Yup. I mean, it sucks to have left my best friends and family, but I did it for the professional reasons: namely, a good business school story and a faster career track.

Because the world really needs more 25-year-old man-children playing Xbox and chasing tail all week? Give me a break, they're 22, not 17!

Damn? Even when I live allone it was always under $1,100... Including car operating cost. One time it was $650 a month, living in my car. This is total cost of living.

Yup, I'm definitely going to have to move when this lease ends at the end of August...

I'm at 13% of non-bonus income and its probably going to go up a ton unless I can find some sweet deals.

of course if I listen to the rent calculator here: http://www.domu.com/rent-calculator
I am apparently paying an unacceptably low amount of rent and can really afford a pretty baller place.

south is cheap...
look at bigger cities like NYC/Boston/Philly/DC/LA/SF then cost is astronomical..
100gs is piss money, while the same 100gs can get you real far in shit holes like ATL
